  1. O M G !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THIS SEEMS COMPETITIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

  2. COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great!!! SE I LOVE YOU!!! I have heard smth about it, but I even can’t imagine smth like this!!! AWESOME!!!!!! Sony Ericsson – BRAVO!!!!!

  3. ALL HAIL THE BIG BAD SE! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ You have failed to dissatisfy again…and isn’t that great!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Is it real??? The side just looks like C905!! And didn’t SE say that they will not make any Symbian phones? โ“

  5. Dude SE never told that, everyone new SE was making SFOS phone…. ANd this phone looks great!

  6. SE finally did it?!

    What about the video recodring and stereo spearker? ๐Ÿ™
    What is the display resolution?! :dizzy:

  7. Very nice looking phone… :mrgreen:
    I don’t really like all the buttons on the side because I always press them accidentally when I take my current phone (HTC Touch) out of my pocket.

  8. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ the best not smartphone ever ( better than ultra suck and arena 8) the next xperias will kick ass !

  9. berka,

    The resolution NOT the size. Actually, it looks more than 3″ and I hope. The resolution should be 854ร—480 just like Japanese SE phones.

    This phone really needs big and powerful speakers … SE PLEASE ;-( !!!!

    The video recording should be more than VGA, because VGA is going to be outdated after a while.

  10. I don’t think this is an Xperia
    Xperia is an all around experience, not a 12.1MP camera. I think this will be Cyber-shot series.

    I think Xperia successor will be announced later today.

  11. Cool phone.. bravo to Sony Ericsson for a 12.1 Megapixels camera.
    Impressive touch screen phone..
    Trust only the Number One brand Sony Ericsson.. ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. Super!!!!!!!!! finaly SE made a perfect phone. I wonder if it has stereo speakers. I hope it is a fast phone, not like other SE smartphones.

  13. In my opinion, this phone should have
    -More than VGA video recording ( 720P or even Full Hd, although Full HD is impossible now ).
    -Stereo speakers or Quad speakers. It does not matter .. IT SHOULD BE LOUD!. Some Japanese SE phones have more than stereo speakers and all of them are very loud as I know, unlike our phones which most of them have bad speakers, even my W595 could be better ;-(
    -3.5mm port IS IMPORTANT. Even low-end and non-music nokias have 3.5mm port nowadays. W995 should not be the only phone.


  14. Very very very very very very awesome, finally SE made a phone to be proud of. SE is making 12.1 MP phones, nokia is still on the 5 MP phones?????? The video must be at least D1 to be good. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  15. This is only concept with Symbian S60 5th edition and 8,1 Mpix. Real phone will be announced in Q2 2009. ;-(

  16. Everyone please visit the link..
    This phone is simply impressive..
    It will knock out all the other brands..
    With excellent technology from Sony, combined with audio and imaging..
    the 12.1 Megapixels phone should be the first in the world.
    It’s gonna be an awesome and perfect phone of the future..
    Pls no negative comments and await for this upcoming phone in Q3.
    Sony Ericsson currently is the leading and trusted brand in the century..

  17. Nooooo, Symbian is terrible. It doereen wallpaper !! This not support flash wallpapers (.swf) as full screen.
    Symbian = No Good

  18. display resolution is 320*640 and 3.5inch. looks hot, i hope it has 3.5mm connector and mini usb.
    SE rocks.

  19. that looks sick !!, had promised meself not to buy a touch screen phone anymore but this one is tooo tempting. am getting it.

  20. Iโ€™m a Sony Ericsson user and technician and I sale mobiles.
    Iโ€™m happy to have a symbian menu not windows mobile, because I like smart and easy use of Sony Ericsson menu.
    I trust Sony Ericsson.
    Good luck

  21. hope they put a 3.5mm socket in the production model…… besides that, all the rest is premium sony ericsson

  22. they release the xperia 8 month after it presentation at mwc 2008 without any upgrade and with a ridiculous price tag. ๐Ÿ˜ณ
    Like the hikaru I hope the next Xperia, cyber-shot and the next g serie will be impressive ๐Ÿ˜€

  23. Wow!!!! It is much better than Hikaru!!!
    Will be the best concept phone in 2009!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. YES – Finally an IPhone for grew-ups!! Love it! I want that – and I want that now! ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Amazing product….hope soon we get it in local markets with price we can reach…..hheeeeeeeee ๐Ÿ˜›

  26. Gosh. i just wished it had a keypad. Touch screen never really appealed to me.. But gosh!! Everything just seems so perfect!! Now, if only it had a keypad…

  27. does any one know how to let SE know our suggestions??? ๐Ÿ˜† so far the info i gather is it has a 3.5″ screen,16million colours, using micros SD card and too bad,it doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack~~swt~~ really hope it will have a high resolution video rec and divX files support.

  28. oh ya the price, taiwan fren says price range will be around 2800 Ringgit Malaysia, but one of my fren in us tells me that it was priced in range of 800USD

    i hope sonyericsson can added keypad for this. itโ€™s hard without keypadโ€ฆ”

    Yeah. I so agree. It would then be perfect. *Grins* Well, at least for me… Shh! I can at least day-dream, right? xD

  31. Love this phone…waiting for it to come out since late last year. But i just hope that it will come in T-mobile US, since they have a thing with Sony phones. not just that so that i can get 3G on that phone, the t-mobile idiots have to have a stop special frequency for their 3G and Sony are one of the few companies putting the t-mobile 3G frequency on their phones
